She also worked for a short period in the publishing industry; writing and editing, and then as a freelance writer and editor.

Sumayya has always been interested in helping people and in 2013 realised that her passion was in Audiology and Speech-Language Therapy and in contributing and working in the medical field.

Towards the end of 2013 she focused the summation of her energy into the opening of an Audiology practice at the Parkview Medical Suites. She is also accredited for Speech-Language Therapy at Garden City Clinic.
